Ever since leaving WWE Mercedes Mone has made it her mission to help elevate women’s wrestling across the globe.
At Wrestle Kingdom 17 she made her debut appearance for NJPW before going on to defeat KIARI and become the IWGP Women’s Champion the following month at Battle in the Valley in Los Angles.
However, despite performing on the other side of the world, Mone is still keeping an eye on WW goings on. Appearing at Planet Comic Con, Mone was asked about who in WWE has impressed her lately she would like to face if she ever returned.
“I really like Zoey Stark in NXT. She is super talented and amazing. She is ready to blast off and shine and given the opportunity, I would love to see her on Raw or SmackDown. Of course, my girl Bayley. I’m not done with her yet. I love her, I think she’s amazing. Natalya. She’s one of my favorites and I feel like I never really got the opportunity to have a long match with her. I’d like to have an Iron Woman match with her. I used to train with her and we used to train for an hour, non-stop, just calling. I know me and her would have an incredible Iron Woman match.”
Mercedes Mone Wants To Retire Former WWE Star
As well as highlighting Zoey Stark, Bayley and Natalya as possible opponents, Mone also picked out another former WWE Superstar she would love to get in the ring with.
At the same Q&A session, Mone revealed she wanted to fight and retire the current IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Champion, Micke James.
“I definitely believe in 2023 that I can definitely make that dream come true. So I definitely would love to face Mickie James and retire her ass. Send her back to that rodeo and go ride that horse. Bye, Mickie”
Mone’s next match comes in form of an IWGP Women’s Championship defence at NJPW Sakura Genesis.
